SAF-Holland S.A. and DAF Trucks have agreed on an aftermarket cooperation deal. DAF Trucks will integrate SAF-Holland parts in its Truck and Trailer Parts program (TRP) and supply its service dealers across Europe with SAF-Holland parts. Original SAF-Holland parts will thus now be available at all 1,100 DAF service dealers across Europe.
The aim is to increase aftermarket's share of total sales from currently 22% to 25% in the medium term, and 30% in the long term, thereby boosting SAF-Holland profitability.
The Aftermarket division supplies parts to the parts business of the car makers, to car dealers, as well as to independent service centers and trucking companies. Currently, SAF-Holland's own service network consists of more than 7,000 outlets across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
